Baldwins and Cox Jerome merge

The deal will see Baldwins, which has 13 offices from Nottingham to Wales, move its Walsall HQ to Cox Jerome's larger offices "just a few doors away"

BALDWINS Accountants – one of the largest independent firms in the Midlands – has bought out near neighbour Cox Jerome in a deal which will see it grow its Walsall staff to 35.

The acquisition will see Baldwins, which has 13 offices from Nottingham to Wales, move its Walsall headquarters to Cox Jerome’s larger offices “just a few doors away”.

John Baldwin (pictured), who joined his father’s firm 44 years ago, said the move would serve both firms well and bring mutual benefits: “This is a common sense move. We have been looking to grow our presence in Walsall and our strength, size and expertise will add a great deal to existing clients of Cox Jerome.

“It also means that we can look to further grow our client base in the area and the move of premises will allow us to expand our team still further. The two companies have obviously been aware of each other over many years, and we see this as a natural progression for Baldwins.”

Philip Abraham, senior partner at Cox Jerome, said being part of Baldwins would give clients access to increased services: “Baldwins is a massive success story. Its team has built one of the largest and most go-ahead accountancy practices in the region and being a part of that will be exciting for us and will give our staff a real chance to progress.

“We have seen Baldwins develop over recent years and this move will give our clients access to some industry-leading experts. It is a very exciting development.”

In December 2014, Baldwins made its then biggest ever expansion, in a merger with Turner Peachey.

Baldwins, led by father and son John and David Baldwin , has existing offices in Tamworth, Walsall, Stourbridge, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Ashby de la Zouch, Coventry, Leamington, Shifnal, Bridgnorth, Shrewsbury, Welshpool, and Oswestry.
